Not all Broken Bones come from an injury

A Stress Fracture is a broken bone that comes from overuse. You can just be walking a lot more than usual and the bone can be stressed and eventually break. The break can be a hairline fracture often not visible on an x-ray.

Fracture Base of 5th Metatarsal

Avulsion Fracture

Could I have a Stress Fracture? 

Stress fractures are usually seen when:

  • You start a new job that requires a lot of walking
  • You go on a vacation to an amusement park walking a lot more than usual
  • You start a new exercise routine trying to get into shape

Anything that suddenly increases how much you walk can create a stress fracture in your foot.

Certain types of  stress fractures do not show up on an x-ray until two weeks after the pain starts. Frequently, we will see patients who are sent for an x-ray that shows nothing is wrong.

If we suspect a stress fracture, we may order an MRI for you, which is able to detect these injuries long before an x-ray can. You might need a walking boot or a surgical shoe that helps to alleviate the pain.

We are here to help.  If you think that you have a stress fracture, or any type of foot or ankle injury, give our office a call (845) 298-9074.  We will get you in for a same day appointment.
